Cedar Grove Cheese Factory is located just outside of tiny Plain, WI, in the heart of Wisconsin’s dairy producing region. For over 100 years we have worked with local farmers to get top quality milk. Drive around and you will see farms dotting the valleys and nestled into the sides of hills.
We love to get visitors! Come and see cheese being made the old-fashioned way. We tell our visitors about the history and art of cheesemaking and how small-scale production helps us, our environment, and the farmers and local businesses we work with.
We offer tours of our factory – please call ahead for days and times. Group tours are always welcome. Our facility is fully accessible for anyone! You will see premium cheese being made the old fashioned way. We tell our visitors about the art of cheesemaking, the history of cheesemaking, and the economics of the small scale cheesemaking industry. You can also visit our Living Machine (TM) to see how our wash water gets cleaned in a beautiful way. Occasionally we take a day off production for repairs, so we recommend that tour groups call ahead (our wash water treatment facility is always operational).
